Handcrafted is who we are. It’s what we do. Mad Alchemy has turned down opportunities to increase mechanization of production in order to maintain this intimate connection to the products we create. There’s frequently a disconnect between a company and it’s goods. At Mad Alchemy, we have a passion for creating with our hands and have no plans to change. So when we where considering team bikes it felt only natural that we use companies that employ the same principles of production and connection to their products. What we’ve created have been an amazing network of builders, creating through passion with their hands.
